For Post Doctoral Residents/Applicants

Application Process


How can I apply to an AABN program?

Contact the director of the programs you are interested in, and ask how to apply.  Or, the links from our Member Programs page contain much information on applying to each individual program.

Is there a standard application packet?

No. However, most programs request curriculum vitae, 3 letters of recommendation, and a graduate transcript. Some programs allow the curriculum vitae and letters to be submitted by email. A few programs may also ask that you submit samples of your work (e.g., neuropsychological reports).

Is it necessary to be from an APA- or CPA-approved program in clinical psychology and have an APA- or CPA-approved internship in clinical psychology?

AABN recognized training programs require trainees to meet APPIC standards and trainees must be eligible for certification through the National Register of Health Service Psychologists.  An APA- or CPA-approved internship is preferred by many programs but not required. In some cases, exceptions are made. If you do not have these qualifications, you should talk to the directors of the programs you are interested in. Also, you can get some information about specific program requirements and preferences from the AABN Member program website links.
